Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

I'm going to watch Fritz play a qualifying match in Sacramento on Sunday. I'll try to take some pictures for you.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

Thanks. I got there very late today (just not moving in a hurry at all, it's Sunday) and I missed Fritz completely. He won his match today, so I have another chance to see him tomorrow. I promise I'll move faster.

Just hope you have a good time. Photos wouldn't be bad of course, but that's the most important thing!

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

I am so far. Spoke to Fritz after his match and he thanked me for the support. He was on the worst possible court, no place for spectators. I stood by the gate and watched through the fence, I could only see half the match, but I said something positive almost every time he was at my end of the court (when he wasn't screwing up, that match was kind of ugly).

That's good that you got to talk to him. Did he have anything to say worth a mention? Well, it looks like your support worked yesterday anyway, because he lost today and I wasn't prepared for that at all.

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

It's hard work having to qualify every time, I'm sure he would be much better ranked by now with direct entries. But he has shown enough to suggest that can achieve a decent ranking next year.

This week he is playing in Australia (direct entry), where the field is beatable, although ranking and money wise he may regret not chosing Kuala Lumpur where the depth of the field is hardly better than here despite $125K vs $25K.

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

Well, he just beat Healey, 6-7 6-2 6-4. That is a very good win for him, and him breaking Healey so many times is a good sign for his overall game.

Second round loss to Chen(?). Consistency will still come in time.

Burnie QF- Wolmarans d. Sirianni 6-3 4-6 6-3

Alun Jones is next. Potential upset and a place back in the top 300?

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

After a solid week, Fritz will claim a new career high of around 285. Amazing progress from outside the top 600 earlier this year.

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

Interesting that Sirianni is having such a good run in Adelaide, and Fritz was able to beat him just a month ago. Maybe he should try his luck in some qualifying draws again.
